TV show description:
This dramatic science-fiction TV series explores the question “What would you do without it all?” A family struggles to reunite in an American landscape where every single piece of technology — computers, refrigerators, air conditioners, planes, cars, phones, lights — has mysteriously stopped working. Electrical power has simply gone away. The show also revolves around the idea of family — both the family you’re born into and the family you choose.

Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos) is the headstrong, curious and daring daughter of Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell) and Ben Matheson (Tim Guinee). Ben is hiding a mysterious secret about the blackout. Maggie (Anna Lise Phillips), a medical doctor, became involved with him following his wife’s death.

When Charlie’s younger and thoughtful brother, Danny (Graham Rogers), is kidnapped by militia leaders, she must reconnect with her estranged uncle Miles Matheson (Billy Burke), a former US Marine and warrior who’s living as a recluse.

Together, with a rogue band of survivors, they set out to rescue Danny, overthrow the militia and ultimately re-establish the United States of America. All the while, they explore the enduring mystery of why the power failed and how or if it will ever return.

The rebel group includes fighter Nora (Daniella Alonso); General “Bass” Monroe (David Lyons), a former Marine who served alongside Miles; and Aaron (Zak Orth), a former Google executive and a computer genius who’s ill-prepared for the rigors of the technology-less world.

Captain Tom Neville (Giancarlo Esposito), a cultured former insurance adjuster turned Monroe Republic leader and Nate Walker (JD Pardo) is a member of the militia who has conflicted feelings for Charlie.

‘Loved this show – especially the casting! ‘Hope it gets picked up again by someone, and maybe the writing can focus more on the premise of the show – surviving in a post-electricity world more and fighting enemies a little less.

This was a GREAT TV show that I didn’t even know existed until Netflix and it’s awesome. Had I known it was on TV I would have definitely followed it. From what I understand, NBC moved around the times of the show & that is probably why I didn’t know about it. They should bring back this show and keep it at a regular time slot. They can’t expect the ratings to stay at a constant level if they move the show around. Anyway, I for one would definitely love to see this show renewed. Give it another shot and I bet they get the ratings that they want, especially now that people know about the show from Netflix that didn’t know about it before. Please renew this show.

I dont know it was grear series why it should be cancelled.
i think the rullers in production companies must have rulles as when they start any project they must finish it , better study before production till cancelled them in the middle of the way.
it is not epic work.

I liked the show, but I can see why it was cancelled.

The ratings dropped and the writing kept getting worse. NBC should have continued with a new team of writers, but that is NBC’s problem. They will cancel shows left and right, rather than invest in the shows people really like.

You can’t tell me more people watch Grimm than any other show on in that time slot.
